Wire jewelry – another tries

Hello Guys,

I am following my personal journey to create wire jewelry. I’ve bought some new set of wires, and ordered a HUUUGE amount of stones, beads, etc. (Addictive things again… ). There is one heart shaped pendant what I cannot show you, as one of my husband’d cousin asked it, but here are the others:

These are still not perfect, but I have learned a lot again… 🙂

One item swap package sent – Felt needle book – Harry Potter issue: LUNA

Hello Guys,

that was one of the hardest swap what I had at all. 🙂 I have got a partner who like a lot of films/cartoons/series, what I don’t know! She made a ling list of things what she would like to get, but I only had few ideas what to do. I knew that she likes Harry Potter, and she likes cartoons, so I have find a cute cartoon drawing of Luna (her favorite character), and started to work on that. Was really hard, but I like the result. Do you?

And another 2 packages – hexagon quilt magnets

So as I mentioned my yesterday’s post, here are another package, what I’ve sent. I have made almost the same things: hexagon quilt magnets.

The patchwork magnets’ inspiration was came from this pin:

I wanted to try to make hexagon quilts, so here are my creations. Started with these:


Then I made some grouped hexagons: 3 tiles each:



They can be ‘puzzle pieces’ too, as bot of the swappers got 10-10 pieces of these. Meliisa got it with a nice felt pendant:


Teresa got already a felt thing from me, so she got some bees (magnets) from polymer clay:


It was fun to make, I hope they like them 🙂

(For July I wanted to stay far from these swaps, and only applied to a ‘One Item Swap’ thing, I will post those pictures as soon as my partner got her package)

Aaand… another claim – felt needle book

Hello Guys,

I had some time to lay down a bit: we had some vacation. I just read the blogs and forums, and checked if there are anything arrived to my swap partners, but that was it. I did not wanted to write at all. You’ll see, why :-))

Of course I brand a lot of felt and beads, threads etc. to my vacation, and I was attend to a craft fair too, so I did not stop what I am doing all the time –> pictures are coming in the next few days. But first: here are the swap things…

Here are the package what I’ve sent in June: a felt needle book, and a bird pendant:

Another 2 packages will be reveiled tomorrow 😀

Another set of denim bracelet

Hello Guys,


I have ordered some resin cabochons, and didn’t know exactly what to do with them. I wanted to try some new stuff, but I didn’t know, what is coming out from those.

I have made some new denim bracelets (you can find my tutorial about that here). If you don’t want to DIY, you can buy mine at my shop.

Wire jewelries

Hello Guys,


I have got some wire earrings a few weeks ago, and I wanted to try to make some by myself. Here are my bad decisions:

– I love black things, so I bought black wires. The bad point is: if I am working with that, it’s became damaged a bit, and the ‘painting’ is falling off

– I did not check the pliers’ size, so I have ordered some seriously small set of those, and it’s so hard to work with those

– I did not check the round cabochons’s size as well, so those are smaller than I wanted. No problem, I can deal with it too…


So, these were the excuses, so I can share some pictures about my first creations.

Here is my very first item, my wire earrings:

Handmade -black - wire earrings
Handmade -black – wire earrings

Then, I have made a pendant:

Handmade -black - wire pendant
Handmade -black – wire pendant

My husband said that it’s okay, but it’s not my style, I can make much better things than this one. It’s not that impressive … so I have started to work on that some hours, and here is the result:

Handmade -black - wire pendant
Handmade -black – wire pendant

Much better, don’t you think? :)))


And finally, I have made another earrings, which is not as good as it could be…

Some new felt earrings with beautiful colors

Hello Guys,


I was away for some days, without real internet connection. Had some rest in the beach, and finally could read a book, and daydreaming. Was really fun. Unfortunately I still not feel that I don’t need more rest, but still… that was a really good weekend! 🙂

During the time, I have made a lot of new earrings. Mainly for the festivals, where that guy will go with my stuff, but I think, I will upload most of them to the shop too. I still have my 20% offer (use coupon code: SUMMERSALE), so, if you need any of them, just click on the buy button 🙂
